If you are interested in digging deeper into this topic of digital asset management, you may find the next few sites really helpful. The first resource site that I want to highlight is dpbestflow.org. Here in this site, you are going to find a wealth of information about digital photography and about workflow and about digital asset management. Here is what you want to do. You want to navigate over to Best Practices and then go to either of these categories: either Backup or Data Validation. What you can do is click on one of these areas, and you can learn a lot about backup overview, system configuration, data restoration, et cetera.
Now, the other area that I recommend that you look into is Data Validation. Now, what data validation has to do with this it's a way of just making sure your files are backed up or synced or that you have actually copied a file from one location to another. The last thing that I want to highlight here is that if you go to the Resource section and then click on Links, when you scroll down a little bit, you'll find some software recommendations for data validation. In other words, what you can do is you can click on one of these links. Let's say you're on a Mac.
You may want to visit this site for ChronoSync. ChronoSync is a great tool, which actually synchronizes files. It can create an automatic backup of your system, or of certain files. In regards to Lightroom, that can be a really helpful, especially because this can automatically back up your catalog file, so that you don't have to manually do this and manually copy it to new location. It will take care of this for you. You'll also find in this section some links to some other software for working on a Windows operating system.
So again, be sure to visit that site. It's dpbestflow. It was put together by a few people. One of the lead people was Peter Krogh. He is a great friend, and really one of the world's experts on digital asset management. Because he is such an expert, I want to highlight his book. It's called "Digital Asset Management for Photographers." This is a very thorough, very detailed book on digital asset management. Now this isn't a book that you can sit down and read from cover to cover in one sitting; rather, you'll read little pieces of it, or maybe you'll refer back to certain pages or chapters frequently.
If you want to dig deeper into this topic, I mean, if you want to become an expert yourself in this space, you'll definitely want to check out his book. Again, it's "Digital Asset Management for Photographers," and it was written by Peter Krogh. Well, I hope that those few resources will be helpful for you as you strive to learn more about digital asset management.
